Ahead of the Oscars on Sunday, February 28 – in which Dublin’s Lenny Abrahamson is up for Best Director ‘gong’ for Room…

Sarah Neville, of RTÉ, writes:

“Starting on Sunday, February 14, RTÉ2 will broadcast What Richard Did, which fast-tracked the career of actor Jack Reynor and who has since starred in the Transformers franchise. The season continues on Saturday, February 20, with Garage, starring Pat Shortt. Then the much-loved Adam and Paul will air after coverage of the 88th Academy Awards ceremony on Monday, February 29, on RTÉ2.”

    Thought Garage was one of the dullest movies I ever had to endure, nothing happened, then some more things never happened

    Fair play Lenny, talks some shite but gotta give him credit for some brilliant movies. Adam & paul a personal favourite. Nice to know he has his pension sorted now with Room.

    Had a bit of a problem with the mugging of the Down syndrome guy at the bus stop in Adam and Paul, which was seen by some people who described/ sold the movie to me as a bit of a laugh?
    Did I misunderstand the point of that scene somewhere. I hope never to see anything as debased again in a movie

      Sounds like it’s the people who described it to you, you should have the problem with.
      That was a disturbing scene

      I don’t think it was intended to be seen as “a bit of a laugh” but rather to illustrate the depths to which people will sink when they need money for drugs.
